First you should check your handbrake. It could be partially on or just out of adjustment.
Jack up each rear tire, put a jack stand under the car for safety, then, with the handbrake off, try to spin the rear wheel by hand. The tire should rotate easily.
Pull up the handbrake until you can't rotate it. Count the handbrake clicks, if it's less than 4, it should be adjusted.
Do the above procedure for both rear wheels.

If the wheel still locks, it could be caused by a sticking brake caliper. Someone will have to look at the brakes and repair the lock-up.

SOURCE: My 2001 mitsubishi Gallant power steering went off while driving

If the reservoir is full, than the pump is bad, most likely worn pump seals. Check pump hoses for any air leaks.

To bleed the power pump, turn the wheel fully left, then fully right, SEVERAL times.
This is the correct procedure to bleed the air from the pump.

SOURCE: how do I reset the service engine soon light?

two ways you can do it. First it would be best to find someone with a code reader to find out what the code is ,some times aout parts stores will check the code for you and maybe even clear it for you.otherwise unhook one of your battery cables for a little while and the check engine light will go off untill what ever set it off sets it off again note unhooking the battery will clear your radio stations
